Why are you attending #OTOMTG19?

Mohammed A. Gomaa, MD (Minya, Egypt)

“The reasons for attending the Annual Meeting are cutting-edge science, networking with colleagues from all over the globe, and excellent educational material that I never find in any other international meeting. I attend not only for the meeting with experts and up-to-date instruction courses, but also to see the recent innovation in the field of ORL at the OTO Experience. Annually, I travel 14 hours to attend this mega event.”

And lastly, I really do enjoy much of the content, which keeps me abreast of current day practices and helps shape my practice.”
